Intellectual Property Office - Local Authority Training Programme 2023-24

The partnership will build on the proven success of the recent IPO supported ‘IP in Practice’ training courses which were tailored to meet regional Trading Standards needs and delivered on a regional basis.

Training will be in the form of webinars and face-to-face events delivered regionally.

Each online webinar comprises an introduction to a substantive element of IP which will give delegates a basic awareness of the definitions, duration, criminal offences and powers in relation to each right.
